Chief of Staff to Ocasio-Cortez Admit’s Her “Green Deal Is Not All About the Environment

Saikat Chakrabarti

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green Deal” is more about the overhaul of the US economy than it is about climate change. This was the surprise admission made by Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff.

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” Chakrabarti added.

The “Green Deal” has some radical left-wing proposals. For example the end of fossil fuels within 10 years, a basic income program, universal health care, and job guarantees.

The proposal also calls for “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality and cooperative and public ownership.”

It has been estimated that the “Green Deal” could cost $98 trillion over a decade.

Smug politicians scammed NYC out of Amazon’s HQ2 and ruined it for everyone

On Valentine’s Day, Amazon broke hearts all over New York City, dumping us like a boyfriend with cold feet. The loss is incalculable.

Gone, apparently for good, is the promise of not only more than 25,000 new highly skilled and well-paying jobs, at least a chunk of them for women and minorities, but all the goodies that go along with them.

With the withdrawal from its proposed campus in Long Island City, the company has snatched away potentially tens of billions in tax revenue, soaring interest in local real-estate, plus new stores, restaurants and guaranteed employment for everyone from babysitters to dog-walkers.

Nice going.

It’s official. New York is not only freakishly hostile to business, but suspicious to a suicidal degree of billionaires who own things, the very people who bring employment to our midst. With their “Take these jobs and shove it” attitude, New York’s sanctimonious, progressive politicians and assorted naysayers should be proud of themselves.

But what about the rest of us?

Democratic City Council member Jimmy Van Bramer took part in an unseemly “victory press conference” Thursday, one with little support from ordinary Joes and Janes who badly wanted to work for the company, only to see their hopes demolished.

Newbie US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, self-described democratic socialist, reacted to the exit news not with somber reflection or the announcement of new jobs-creating initiatives — but with an insulting Twitter celebration.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she tweeted.

She failed to explain how she intends to pay for her signature initiatives, a basket of gifts, including free health care, free college, and the total elimination of carbon emissions, as contained in her Green New Deal — a draft proposal of which bemoaned the likely inability to rid the nation quickly of airplanes and “farting cows.”

Long Island City’s Democratic state Sen. Mike Gianaris, the deputy majority leader — a former Amazon enthusiast — has taken to endlessly deriding the company with the Twitter hashtag “#Scamazon.” He joined anti-Amazon activists at a ridiculous rally in Queens Saturday, where he said, “We’ve learned over the last year that Amazon is not a responsible company. They want to take $3 billion from us. We’re trying to stop it.”

Well, he did. Thanks a lot.

Every politician who expended oxygen or computer keystrokes to run out what would have been a gigantic boon to the city is guilty of “political malpractice,” as Gov. Andrew Cuomo said about Gianaris.

Every one of these Bozos should pay for this incredible loss with their jobs, come Election Day. Or sooner.

As recent polls demonstrate, a majority of New Yorkers were all in for Amazon. We know better than these out-of-touch politicos what’s good for us. No professional activist will feed our families.

While Amazon’s kiss-off of the city may well serve us right, I am not alone in bemoaning this development. Not only have we been stripped of a great opportunity for real employment growth and related monetary benefits, the fleeing of Amazon will reverberate for years to come.

The officers of other corporations considering setting up shop in the city will realize they’d rather stick pins in their eyes than tangle with New York’s loathsome political class.

Most any municipality in the nation would eagerly grab the $27.5 billion tax windfall to be paid over 25 years, for the cost of just shy of $3 billion in taxes and subsidies over the same period. These are the numbers touted by Gov. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, who fought for this deal, and they’ve not been debunked.

As the company fades away, shame should fall squarely on the shoulders of all the people responsible, most of whom have never even met their constituents. The entire city will live to regret their bone-headed moves.

Amazon backs out of NYC headquarters deal because of Liberal/ Socialist politicians

Love definitely isn’t in the air today — at least not for supporters of Amazon’s New York City headquarters. The retailer has officially called it quits on its plans to launch an NYC-based HQ2 in Long Island City, citing less-than-supportive city leaders as the primary reason.

Though 56% of New Yorkers supported the move, Amazon says “a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us.“

The rumors of a pullout had been swirling since Friday when theWashington Post broke the news that Amazon might be reconsidering its decision. Local lawmakers like Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Michael N. Gianaris have been outspoken about their distaste for the project in recent weeks, as have several city council members and community leaders.

Still, many experts brushed it off wheeling and dealing on the part of Bezos and Co. As Gill Chowdhury of New York’s Warburg Realty put it: “It is a negotiating strategy. Jeff Bezos and Amazon are more powerful than New York City — at least they are more powerful than New York City’s leaders. Coming to terms and then asking for more is a negotiating strategy.”

Though Mayor Bill de Blasio reportedly brokered a meeting between union leaders and Amazon executives as late as Wednesday, it appears the talks were ineffective. De Blasio has been a firm supporter of the project since the beginning.

According to Eric Benaim, who recently started a petition in favor of the New York City-based headquarters, de Blasio and other leaders might have some unhappy constituents now that the deal has fallen through.

Before Amazon’s announcement, Benaim said, “I would think the local leaders who oppose Amazon coming to LIC are worried, because if the deal does get rejected, they will go down in history as the people who lost 25,000 jobs for New York City.”

Amazon announced its plans to build the Long Island City campus late last year. It would have created up to 40,000 jobs and $27.5 billion in local tax revenues, according to estimates. According to Amazon’s announcement, the company is not reopening its search for a second HQ2 location and will move forward with its plans for Crystal City, Virginia, and Nashville.
